'''=== Mayflower Project Checklist Completed ===''' will be added to profiles after the Sources section and before Acknowledgements.

General housekeeping

  • Does the profile belong in the Project?
  • Project box in place - Mayflower Family Member or Mayflower Passenger -
  • Mayflower Project as manager? Other managers are ok also.
  • Duplicates?
  • Are the categories appropriate?
  • When you think you've completed your work on the profile, check the Suggestions for it using the pull-down menu at the top of the profile that is headed by the profile ID (ex: MacIntyre-123). Solve any issues listed. (or mention them in the comment section.

Data section

  • Data Correct? birth date and place, parents, marriage date and place, death date and place. Pay close attention to before, after, estimate, exact. Do they agree with what's in the bio?
    • If no children, check the box. If no more children/siblings, check the box.
    • There is on the marriage page a place to click no spouse.
  • Check the appropriate certainty and confidence buttons and no middle name if appropriate (it usually will be before 1700).

Biography Section

  • Good Bio?
    • Are there sentences with clear sources for the data points?
    • Does the bio agree with the data points?
    • If a marriage is mentioned in the bio is it also in the Data section?
    • Inline citations? Help page Inline Citations. If still confused ask.
  • Good Sources? There are plenty of primary sources for passengers and children and good secondary sources. Ancestry trees, Millenium file, Yates Pub., Find a grave indexes, Find a Grave without stones are not acceptable.
  • Children list (sourced)? Each profile of a person who had children should have a list of those children at the end, (with some identifying fact). One secondary source for the list is fine. Their profiles will have better sourcing.
    • Are the children attached the ones on the list? Do the facts agree?

Hi - I'm a novice so not sure what I'm doing. I'm trying to reach out and say hello. I am related to Mayflower passenger, Richard Warren --

1. Gregg (me) is the son of Bill Smith 2. Bill is the son of Ruby V. (Carpenter) Smith (1894-1984) 3. Ruby is the daughter of Mary Emma (Ablett) Carpenter (1867-1916) 4. Mary is the daughter of Phebe Baker (Sprague) Carpenter (abt.1828-1872) 5. Phebe is the daughter of Benoni Sprague (1784-1857) 6. Benoni is the son of Lydia Sprague (1750-1806) 7. Lydia is the daughter of Ruth (Salisbury) Sprague (1722-abt.1826) 8. Ruth is the daughter of Ruth (Boomer) Salisbury (1700-abt.1742) 9. Ruth is the daughter of Hannah (Church) Boomer (1668-1732) 10. Hannah is the daughter of Caleb Church (1647-bef.1722) 11. Caleb is the son of Elizabeth (Warren) Church (abt.1616-1670) 12. Elizabeth is the daughter of Richard Warren (abt.1585-1628)

This makes Richard the tenth great grandfather of Gregg.

Hello Gregg. I see you've connected yourself to Richard Warren on Wikitree. Excellent. Richard is a controversial person at the moment.

Welcome to Wikitree. Mayflower Project. You'll "get the hang of this" in no time.

So I’m hoping to assist in cleaning up and adding to the “Willoughby family of America”

It’s a very closely descended family coming from a small area in Lincolnshire UK Massachusetts Govoner Frances Willoughby probably most well known but many other deep deep family ties to all mayflower and founders of the nation of both England and America. Many of the most notable figures in American and British history have some sort of relative or ancestor of willoughby relation

Welcome to Wikitree, Nicholas. Curious to see if the Willoughbys have any direct Mayflower ancestors I checked the 1981 Mayflower Ancestral Index. Joseph Russell Willoughby (1786-1843) (dates according to Find A Grave) married Mary Morgan (1773-1843) a Mayflower descendant. They lived in Canterbury, Connecticut. So I don't see a lot of connections to the Mayflower project. Although there may be others not listed in the index. I see you have a relation George Soule Kendall Willoughby. George Soule is my Mayflower Ancestor. The Mayflower Project covers the first three generations of Mayflower descendants and those born before 1700. You are certainly welcome to adapt our checklist for use with "Willoughby Family of America”
